The build/spec is fantastic.

Is it something that has been built & in your possession, or something you're thinking of building? If it's the former, all I can ask is what's the performance/benchmarks like? G

When is the X2 5000+ out then thought 4800+ was top one at the mo

This system is currenty not built, but it WILL be built soon enough. Those new things come out around the first of the year. I will probably stick with the 4800+ until the 5000+ prices drop a good amount. This system as configured with the 4800+ will be approxamatly 5000 dollars. When I get this built, I will post specs, benchmarks, pictures, and the cost of it. Thanks for the wows.

And check this out guys. I found this thread today. You can lower your GPU temps by up to 10c on stock cooling, and the best thing is you won't have to void your warrenty.

Having to put up with the 4800+, life is hard;-0

Incidentially. I'm not jealous, honest.

Cor, that makes my Beast look more like a pussycat than a sabre-toothed monster. *goes green with envy*. Who's making that for you? Mine's a Voodoo and I love it to bits - it hasn't crashed once on me since I got it in June.

Hehe, I was told I would be competing with you lol. I might get everything from newegg that way it is all cheaper, then either build it myself or have the computer store build it and give me a warrenty.
